Next time throw a few bucks to someone who knows how to take pictures.

What a bunch of beardos.

Why do people take something completely normal and turn it into a freak show and/or competition?

I was born with a beard...

They tell me it really tickled my mother.

You can't even tell what the beards look like because all the pictures are from 50 feet away. Who's mom took these?

I dreamt last night that Oprah Winfrey had a beard (a real beard, not what you lot are all thinking). Weird timing, that.

I get the feeling the guy on the right is not trying very hard. In any way.

I have a full and bushy Lemmy beard. Mine is almost completely white because I am an old dude. I get compliments but have never entered a contest.

Beards are ugly. But at least they can be removed. Not like a tattoo.

I'll never understand facial hair enthusiasts. Daily shaving is a tiresome chore but after 3-5 days of letting it go it itches like hell especially at the mouth corners and under the nostrils. I once grew a full beard for the hell of it and it looked terrible.... like a mangy dog exposed to excessive radiation in Chernobyl. No ZZ Top impersonations for me

Women in the competition?! Not clicking... Nope...

My ex-husband was a member of the RVA (Richmond, Va) Beard League. Those guys may look a little strange to you, but I've never met a more friendly, welcoming, charity-minded group of people in my life. And their wives/girlfriends/partners are the same. They accept everyone without question.

The RVA guys hold an annual competition with a raffle and all proceeds go to charity. I think at this point they've donated over six figures to various organizations. Lots of other beard groups around the country do the same.

Universally awesome people doing good things who happen to be good at growing facial hair.

This. I grew a mustache when I was 20 to try and look older. I just looked like a douche. And the stache would bother my upper lip. The hairs that grew longer would catch in my teeth. My upper lip area is too short for a real mustache.

It's like budget cuts have forced them to only use photos that their grandmother shared on Facebook.

Seriously, KSL, you're the NBC affiliate for a major city. If you're going to cover a beard contest, photograph it well enough that we can actually see the beards in some level of detail.

I have a weak chin so my beard hides that. I look better with a short maintained beard.

There aren't as many guys who can grow a real beard at 20. I tried and it was all wispy and crappy looking. I tried again in my mid 30s and it did what it was supposed to.

Also, it only itches for a week or two, then it stops. And you should be trimming the moustache so it doesn't go in your mouth.  I use a beard trimmer without a guard for that, or the back of my electric razor.  Also useful for getting into the mouth corners.

women competed in "whiskerina" realistic and creative beard and mustache categories.

Is "whiskerina" the new name for a "whisker biscuit"?
